    Welcome to the British-Genealogy forums

    Are you looking for Thomas' parents or do you also want information for his siblings, parents, baptisms, censuses etc?

    Hello Brianman,

    This is the only marriage I've found between a Thomas Thomas and Susan Owen, could it be the couple you're researching?

    Thomas Thomas married Susanah Owen
    26 Feb 1826, St Briavels, Gloucestershire

    There's a tree on Ancestry which has them living in Castlemaine, Victoria, and the couple have eleven children.

    There is a Thomas B Thomas married to a Susan living in Cornwall, they stay in the UK and Thomas was a master mariner, I'm therefore guessing it's the couple in Australia you are looking for information for???

    Hello Christina / others
    What a surprise , I did not expect a reply so quickly but many thanks .
    Ok short long story , my maternal side were Thomas they go back to John Born about 1788 in St Hilary Died ?? M Elizabeth ( Tredrea ) born 1792 St Hilary Died ??
    Another John (popular name ) his son B 1817 Gulval Died 1853 in ?? England M Amelia ( Beaglehole ) 1844 in Gulval .
    Present Day . whilst I was visiting Thomas family graves at Bendigo Victoria Australia recently I saw said Thomas Thomas / Susan Thomas on a grave quite close to my family and wondered if they were indeed related maybe not but I am interested that his name is not at Cemetery index ( her name is ) a lot of Thomas family members came from Cornwall lived in Bendigo so here I am caught up in this jig saw puzzle people call Genealogy ( madness ?? )
    Sorry to take so long but would to know if they are our's
    Ps If not will still put flowers on their grave when I visit lol
    Many Thanks from Oz

    On the Cornwall OPC site I can find 3 baptisms to Thomas Thomas and mother Susannah.
    William Humphrey 1831, Matthew 1837 and William Humphrey 1837. The first one may have died or the first one was baptised twice.
    All in the parish of Breage. father's occupation a miner. No witnesses
    Because there is a large gap between the marriage in Gloucestershire that Alma found and the first birth if this is the same couple there may be earlier births in Gloucestershire. However the children's names don't match up with the 1841 census.

    The Thomas B Thomas you refer to here from St Ives was Thomas Berriman Thomas, baptised 16 Nov 1808 in St Ives. He married Susan S (haven't found the marriage as yet but only quickly looked) however Thomas and Susan are indeed still in St Ives in 1851 and then in 1861 he is aboard the vessel Mystery off the coast of Swansea. I haven't seen any emigration or passenger list with their names on as yet. Are you certain that the grave you saw pertains to this Thomas? Where did you get Susan's maiden name? Very interesting

    Default Wrong Thomas

    Aha, there you are, Thomas Berriman Thomas born in 1808 St Ives married Susan Stirling Adams, not Susan Owens. So this is the wrong Thomas. I think Almach has the right Thomas for you if you can find their emigration record to Australia.

    Thanks Christina, this is obviously the wrong Susan then, unless they have the parents names wrong which can happen we know. But this Susan you mention from Find A Grave was born as a Thomas, not an Owens...so not the Susan that Brainman is looking for.
